Answers to your questions about Alchemy School

You’re a match for our programs if you’re curious about who you are and your life purpose, and if you’re eager to learn new ways to understand yourself and the world. Mystery School is all about uncovering the mystery within, and celebrating the adventure of the journey.
Mystery School is specifically designed for busy people with full lives. Our three monthly meetings (one weekend day and two evening circles) create a natural rhythm in your life, allowing you to practice and anchor what you’ve learned. There is also ample review built into the schedule in case you miss a session. Rather than being an additional commitment, the tools and practices you learn in Mystery School will create more space and flow in your life. The busier you are, the more this tends to be true.
Because true learning unfolds from within, the time span of nine months enables you to explore what you learn within the context of your daily life. You have the opportunity to integrate new ideas and new understandings within your unique circumstances, and then bring your questions and insights back to the group. The dialogue and creative support from the group is also a big part of how the learning happens.

This is a holistic program designed to support your life. The most significant homework is your life itself. Over the course of our nine months together you will learn many new tools and new perspectives with which to approach your life circumstances. Each month there are a variety of optional readings, videos and activities for those who are interested to explore more. This isn’t required. The most significant homework is your ability to be present to the mystery of your life itself, and willing to explore new ideas.

The term “Mystery School” comes from the ancient world in places such as Egypt where people gathered to study and learn about the Universe. It is said that Plato and Pythagoras were students in the Mystery Schools. Over time these wisdom teachings became hidden in order to preserve them and protect them from those who would use them to abuse power. In our lifetime the teachings have once again become available. The modern “Mystery School” is a place to explore the mysteries of our Universe in order to better understand the mysteries of who we are. The world needs what we have to offer
